hrm ... maybe more detail would have helped.
the tests are similar to what goes on in a module distro. i have a t/ directory that's filling up with DBI-based scripts.
what i'm looking for is an alternative to running each test (or each step of the migration) by hand. the "wrapper" would basically be something like:
system( 'my/dir/01_step1.pl' );
system( 'my/dir/01_step2.pl' );
system( 'my/dir/01_step3.pl' );
which looks an *aweful* lot like a make
target to me.
the alternative is:
[ mybox ] --> ./01_step1.pl ad nauseam.
and it's one DB to another .. so there's no real need for files ....
